State Data

To focus Agency resources and reduce crashes, FMCSA relies on our State partners to provide accurate, comprehensive data. Each month, FMCSA rates States on their reporting of safety data. This page allows States to view their ratings and measures and learn how to improve data quality performance.

SSDQ Measures Are Changing

FMCSA recently re-evaluated the SSDQ measures and identified changes to ensure the data used to inform safety are of the highest quality possible. Log in with your FMCSA Portal user ID and password to preview these changes.

Fatal Crash Completeness

Current Rating

Your rating is

Good (100-90)
Fair (89-80)
Poor (79-0)
NOTE: INSUFFICIENT DATA: State has < 10 FARS records reported AND the number of MCMIS records as a percentage of FARS records is < 90%
Why is This My Rating?
Your Fatal Crash Completeness rating is good because your percentage is between 90-100%.
How is This Calculated?
101% of your State's evaluated fatal crash records were reported to MCMIS as compared to the number of fatal crash records in FARS. These crashes occurred in calendar year 2021. Learn more about how this rating is calculated.
How to Improve My Fatal Crash Completeness?
Data Source: FARS records and MCMIS crash records representing interstate, intrastate, and non-motor carriers and includes only large trucks involved in crashes that occurred within the calendar year. (Excludes FARS records identified for exclusion through the FARS/MCMIS Matching Tool.)

The Fatal Crash Completeness Measure evaluates a full calendar year of fatal crash records to determine your State’s rating. A record is evaluated if the date of the crash event—not the date of upload to FMCSA—falls within that calendar year. (This differs from the other State Safety Data Quality (SSDQ) measures, which evaluate a rolling 12-month period.) This evaluated calendar year is the most recent year for which Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) data is available to the public. The evaluation period is updated when the next full year of FARS data becomes available.


This measure evaluates fatal crash records representing interstate, intrastate, and non-motor carriers, and includes only large trucks. It determines a rating based on a comparison of the number of State-reported fatal crash records in the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) to the number of your State’s crash records in FARS.


FARS is the national database of fatal motor vehicle crashes maintained by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).


If the percentage of State-reported records in MCMIS as compared to the number in FARS is

  • 90% or more, the rating is GOOD
  • Between 80% and 89%, the rating is FAIR, unless the number of FARS records reported is less than 10, in which case the rating is INSUFFICIENT DATA.
  • Less than 80%, the rating is POOR, unless the number of FARS records reported is less than 10, in which case the rating is INSUFFICIENT DATA.
